Your cupcakes are so rich in tropical flavors.

Totally agree with you that pandan is a great natural green colouring and I love the beautiful fragrance of pandan too.

I love how you use pandan in sweet food. I have only used the pandan leaves in savory curried dishes. These look gorgeous. :) Have a wonderful weekend! ~ Ramona
